Today I bought some new flip-flops. Yeah, that is about the most exciting thing that happened today.
I feel uncomfortable when people refer to flip-flops as 'thongs', because to me, a thong is an article of clothing that is NOT worn on the feet, but, you know, in the butt crack!!! Tee-hee!
Every morning on the way to school, I ride the bus with this Austrailian lady. One day she said "I really like how the thongs are so cheap here. I sent home a big box of thongs to my family and friends. All kinds of thongs, fuzzy ones, shiny ones, rubber ones, leather ones, sparkly ones; they all loved them!"
It was quite difficult for me to repress my laughter during her thong speech. Sometimes I call them thongs just to be obnoxious with my American friends, because I know it makes them cringe.
"I have some new leather thongs." Haha.
Actually, the thongs I bought today are black and they have beads on them! Woo! Exciting! I've been thonged!
